Problem 1.

 

Suppose that we wish to estimate

 

?

 

=

 

E

 

[

 

X

 

], and that we design a control variate estimator

 

of the form

where

 

Z

(

),

 

X

 

i

 

are i.i.d copies of

 

X

 

,

 

Y

 

i

 

are i.i.d copies of the control random

 

variable

 

Y

 

, and

 

E

 

[

 

Y

 

] =

 

?

 

is known exactly. Suppose that

 

?

 

*

 

is selected optimally, and you know its

 

value. Furthermore, assume that it takes 1 unit of computer time to obtain each

 

X

 

i

 

, but

 

K

 

units of

 

computer time to obtain each

 

Z

 

i

 

(

 

?

 

*

 

). What is the range of values of

 

?

 

xy

 

, where

 

?

 

xy

 

is the correlation

 

between

 

X

 

and

 

Y

 

, as a function of

 

K

 

, for us to justify the use of this control variate method? Show

 

your derivations step by step.

 

Problem 2.

 

The control variate method describe in class makes use of one control random variable.

 

Sometimes it is also possible to use two control random variables. Suppose that we are interested in

 

estimating

 

?

 

=

 

E

 

[

 

X

 

], and suppose that random variables

 

Y

 

and

 

Z

 

are both correlated with

 

X

 

. Consider

 

the random variable

 

W

 

(

 

?

) =

 

X

) +

 

?

 

2

 

(

 

Z

 

-

 

?

 

2

 

)

 

,

 

where

 

?

 

1

 

=

 

E

 

[

 

Y

 

] and

 

?

 

2

 

=

 

E

 

[

 

Z

 

].

 

(a) Show that

 

E

 

[

 

W

 

(

 

?

 

1

 

,?

 

2

 

)] =

 

?

 

for any

 

?

 

1

 

and

 

?

 

2

 

.

 

(b) Find expressions for

 

?

 

*

 

1

 

and

 

?

 

*

 

2

 

which minimize the variance of

 

W

 

(

 

?

 

1

 

,?

 

2

 

).

 

(c) Suppose that

 

X

 

and

 

Y

 

are positively correlated, and that

 

X

 

and

 

Z

 

are positively correlated as

 

well. Provide an example where
